Alex_Krycek Posted May 26 Share Posted May 26 (edited) With the release of ChatGPT 4 and the development of numerous other generative A.i. platforms, the A.i (re)/(de)volution is clearly upon us. Mass unemployment is one many potential upheavals A.i. could bring. A report from the World Economic Forum in 2021 projected when A.i will take over various sectors: For me, the structural changes A.i. will bring to practically every sector of the economy demand a fundamental rethinking of how our economy is structured. In alignment with the current dialogue catalyzed by Geoffrey Hinton regarding the dangers of A.i. should be a universal discussion on what benefits A.i. must legally afford human society. Such a conversation would be akin to the great Re-Awakening that happened after WW2 in terms of universal human rights and ensuring basic standards for as many people as possible. To cut to the chase, in my view many things that we pay for in society will have to become free in order to make the shift to the brave new world awaiting us. My "free for everyone" shortlist is the following: Basic needs: food, clothing, and shelter All levels of education (as much as a person wants to learn) Transportation Entertainment Utilities such as electricity, water, internet, etc Ultimately the difference between a significantly improved society and a significantly more miserable society rests on our collective decision about what basic rights A.i. should afford each person. How do you see the economy adjusting to the seismic A.i. disruption that is set to take place? Should the social safety net be deepened and expanded, or should it be every man / woman for him/herself? Edited May 26 by Alex_Krycek 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
